Hi, I’m Lisa. Dairy farmer’s wife, mom to one, and Minnesotan to the core, I write about rural farm life, running down country roads, and the food, faith, and family that bind everything together. I strive to stay informed about challenges from a local to international level, find joy in the journey as I do my small part to create positive change, and show compassion and respect along the way. Follow along on my journey.
I grew up in a dairy farm family in Minnesota, and I suppose you could say I didn’t get very far from the farm. I met my husband in college where I was busy being in business school, but after getting married on a chilly February day I again embarked on the farming adventure.
JR and I work together on his family’s century dairy farm, and I try to share a little piece of that life here on my blog.
Our dogs Calvin (in brown) and Boo (in white) are usually ready to lend a hand. Or paw. Our first baby was born in March of 2016, and we are thrilled and captivated by our son as we learn to be parents! You’ll see him referred to as Speedy here on the blog.
I strive to let my faith guide my journey, and I’m always up for a long run, a friendly chat, or a heaping plate of something delicious. Feel free to look around, make yourself comfortable, and leave me your comments. I’m glad you’re here!
